Wind and Gulf Stream Influences on Along-Shelf Transport and Off-Shelf Export at Cape Hatteras , North Carolina

  title={Wind and Gulf Stream Influences on Along-Shelf Transport and Off-Shelf Export at Cape Hatteras , North Carolina},
  author={Dana K. Savidge and John M. Bane},
Along-shelf transports across three cross-shelf lines on the continental shelf near Cape Hatteras have been calculated from moored current meter data over a continuous 24 month period in 1992-1994. The along-shelf convergence has been used to infer off-shelf export. Transport and transport convergence have been related to wind and Gulf Stream forcing and to variability in sea level at the coast. The along-shelf transport variability is primarily wind-driven and highly correlated with sea level… CONTINUE READING
